Seed Germination

Yesterday students learned about seed germination!  And what better way to discover the best condition for sprouting than to perform a little scientific experiment?  Each student placed several different types of beans on their tray and each tray will be exposed to a different environment, varying in sunlight, temperature, etc.

Can you guess what external and internal factors affect seed germination?

Stay tuned for the outcome.  Chances are, while we wait, students will be able to predict the best circumstances to promote germination from their lessons in class!
